Moving on from high school to university is a huge leap, so attending a college before transferring into a bachelor program can be a great stepping stone. Here are our top 3 reasons why starting your post-secondary education in college is a great idea.
Easy to Meet New People
Colleges usually offer smaller class sizes and often, a smaller campus overall. This makes it a little easier to form new friendships and make connections.
College is a great place to start after high school for people who feel they would benefit from a little extra support. Because of the smaller class sizes, instructors can offer more individualized attention. It’s a great environment for building confidence and progressively adjusting to the workload that will be expected once you are working on your degree.
Great for International students
The ability to connect with people in a nurturing post-secondary environment is especially important for international students, who may be completely new to Canada. Attending a college where you can receive more one-on-one attention is especially valuable when English is your second language. Use your time in college to get used to using English in an academic environment so that when you are ready to transfer into a bachelor program, you can be more confident.
